Microsoft is being very competitive right now, and they are really investing in a lot of new features to be more competitive in the marketplace.Patching is the main feature because SCCM is made to control the entire environment without manually interpreting. So it is good to use for patching.The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging.The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching.This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD.This has made the management of our environment easier.This solution helps us by automating the patching of our system.The most valuable feature is the graphical-based reports of software updates that have been successful, the ones that have failed, and a summary of where the failures are what security breaches may occur.

Cons
The predefined reports are not up to the mark and you have to do a lot of customization.I have been looking for a way to deploy patches via the internet to selected equipment from Kaseya VSA, but it seems impossible.Some configurations and abilities from the system are not of use. The solution should offer webinars or some sort of training offerings to help users learn what the system can do and how it can be done.

We'd like the solution to make it easier to manage remote users.The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made.The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.The cost of the product can be improved.This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.I would like to see an agentless version of the solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is quite good and we are satisfied with it.

The licensing is good because they have various options, depending on what you are looking for.SCCM comes with its own version of SQL Server. If you use that SQL Server with SCCM and don't use it for another applications than you get an SQL Server for free.Overall, I think it's fine. It's pretty much in-line because there are ways to offset it with the Office 365 licensing.Pricing and licensing are a downside of SCCM. It's expensive. I'd have to confirm this, but I think they changed the licensing to core-based instead of socket-based. It's not cheap, because you have to buy the software, you have to buy SQL. Another thing we learned from talking to Microsoft is that they provide you a license for SQL if you run it on the same box as the primary server. If you run it outside that box, you have to buy SQL. Microsoft does recommend you running it on the same box because of performance. But then, in order to run SQL, SCCM, and everything on the same box, you better have some resources. It's an expensive solution. There's no doubt about it.Pricing and licensing are horrible. You have to not look at dollar value to use SCCM. It's super-duper expensive but it works. The acquisition cost is expensive, it's labor-intensive. But it works.
